i dont know how make my kids eat veggies,can i get some recepies.thank you

It is difficult, if not impossible to make kids eat veggies if they don’t want to. There are some tips that will help.   First and foremost, it is important that they see you eating them, and that they be served daily at meals so that kids are used to seeing them. They should be encouraged to try a bite, but not forced. It can take up to 10 or more exposures before a vegetable will be accepted, so perseverance is important. Try having your kids select a vegetable to try each week, and have them help you prepare it. Serving new vegetables with a favorite food may help increase their willingness to try them. Click here to see what other moms have to say.
